RE: problem mounting filesystem

Pls try partprobe command. It should detect the partition.

I don't think that's necessary. fdisk calls the ioctl necessary to
re-read the partition table after it's done. In fact it's more likely to

work as expected on IDE disks than with SCSI (try playing with some
fibre channel devices!). However, you can run:

"sfdisk -R /dev/hdd"

which will cause the kernel to reload the partition table. It certainly
can't hurt :-).
